Jacada Announces Major Version Release of Its WorkSpace Agent Desktop -- Latest version offers industry's first, highly innovative user interface delivery model, giving companies the ability to create an optimal agent desktop experience
ATLANTA, Nov. 18, 2011 -- Jacada Ltd. (NASDAQ: JCDA), a leading global provider of call center technology designed to improve the interaction between agents and their customers, today announced the imminent release of an enhanced version of its flagship unified desktop solution, Jacada® WorkSpace Agent Desktop 6.0. As a part of this release, call center leaders will have access to Dynamic Views, a highly innovative user interface delivery model that empowers them to own and control user interface (UI) delivery, define call flow processes, and handle UI changes with ease, delivering the optimal agent desktop experience.
With Jacada WorkSpace, contact center leaders are able to integrate vital applications and multiple channels of communications with the customer into a single, optimized view. Using Dynamic Views, IT can build components and back-end integration services then package these as visual drag-and-drop widgets for use by Business. In this way, IT maintains control of technical integration, yet allows Business to work on creating the user interface, resulting in a dramatically reduced time-to-market.
"Today's call center needs to adapt to changing business requirements on a daily basis. New marketing promotions, product discounts, and support information need to be made available on the agent desktop in near real-time," said Gideon Hollander, co-chief executive officer of Jacada. "Jacada WorkSpace 6.0 represents a significant advancement for our customer experience optimization solution. With IT departments facing ever-increasing project backlogs and competing priorities, seemingly simple changes can take weeks or months to be reflected on the agent desktop and longer to benefit your customers. For the first time ever, the business has full ownership and control for delivering the optimal agent desktop experience."
Since its first introduction in 2005, Jacada WorkSpace has helped customers reduce the cost of their operations, drive customer satisfaction, and experience a complete return on investment within 12 months of deployment. One example is UK-based telecommunications company Telefónica O2, which has improved first call resolution, reduced average handle time by 40 seconds, decreased repeat calls by 25 percent, and cut training time for agents from five weeks to three as a result of using Jacada WorkSpace. Other companies benefiting from Jacada WorkSpace include Permanent General Companies and Nationwide Insurance.

Dynamic Views – Desktop designer incorporating data sources through the use of widgets
